“The Amazing Spider-man” Movie *SPOILERS*
Before I start this post I would just like to say if you have NOT seen the new Spider-Man movie yet and are planning to do so DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER cause I only watched the trailers and I enjoyed the movie a WHOLE lot more cause I didn’t know what was gonna happen. Just recently, my siblings, my friend and I went to the very first showing of the new “The Amazing Spider-Man” movie! Before I go on you should know that Spider-man (particularly the “Ultimate Spider-man” comic book series) is my ALL TIME favourite comic book. And YES I am a geek and proud of it. ^_^ I was VERY happy to find out Andrew Garfield was going to play Spidey cause he looks a LOT more like Spidey than Toby and I was even MORE happy when I found out that he was a really big fan of Web-head ever since he was 2 so he would know the role really well! 😀
Okay now I know you guys probably want me to get onto the movie so I will. 🙂 One word. PERFECT. It followed the comics SO well especially in Spidey’s humour and what Peter/Spidey are like in the comics! 😀 I also liked the fact how they focused on Peter’s past about his parents which is what they do in “Ultimate Spider-man”. Andrew Garfield did a PERFECT job as Peter Parker and I don’t think anyone could do any better! I cannot judge Gwen Stacy’s character in the movie however cause I haven’t read the “The Amazing Spider-Man” comic series and in Ultimate, Gwen is a…well…she breaks the rules let’s just say…and gets in trouble a lot…but she’s still good! In this movie, she’s a smart, top of her classes type of girl. From what I can tell (Again, I don’t know exactly how the “Amazing” Gwen is supposed to be like) Emma Stone (She played as Gwen Stacey) did a REALLY good job as playing as her!!! 😀 Honestly, I can’t find any bad things about this movie aside from a couple of cheesy moments. They even had THE. BEST. Stan Lee cameo! It was HILARIOUS!!! 😀 He played either a janitor or a librarian (sorry…!!! I can’t remember.. -_-“) and he was cleaning up in the library at Peter’s high school with his headphones on listening to music when Spidey and the Lizard barge in while fighting and Stan Lee had his back to them the ENTIRE time he was in there without even noticing them!!! The Lizard even threw a table at him, but Spidey got in just in time of it missing his head within inches! ^_^ 😀
The plot (like I said earlier) focuses a bit on Peter’s parents, specifically on his father and Doc Conners looking for a way for people to grow back lost limbs (there’s probably more to it though…I just missed it… -_-“. But something went wrong and Peter’s parents had to leave him behind with his aunt and uncle and never came back… :`( It comes to present day and Peter is in high school and he’s a nerd with a crush on Gwen Stacey and gets pushed around by Flash Thompson. There’s a flood in the basement at the Parker’s house and they have to take out anything of value from the basement. This is when Peter comes across his father’s briefcase! He looks in it and finds things of his dad’s including an article about his dad and another scientist named Doc Conners. He decides he wants to go talk to Doc Conners and goes to Oscorp where he works and impersonates someone to get into a tour at Oscorp. He then quickly finds out Gwen is working there as an intern and is their tour guide! So, he tries to hide within the group from her. Conners comes along and tells them about his search for a way to grow back lost limbs and he asks if anyone knows how he could do that. One person gives a guess, but gets it wrong. There’s a long pause before Peter blurts out “cross species genetics” and then everyone looks at him and Gwen sees him…O.O haha Here’s the clip if you’d like!
Peter then leaves the group and accidentally bumps into someone carrying secret files. Peter recognizes a symbol on one of the files from a file he found in a secret compartment in his dad’s briefcase and decides to follow the man. He leads Peter to a room and Peter watches as he unlocks the room and how to, so Peter can which is what he does after the guy leaves with one of the workers that were in the room. There are machines in there testing things such as the strength of spider webs (I’m guessing…that’s what they looked like anyways…) and a door leading to another room. He (of course) goes into the other room which is FILLED with spiders in this thing (I have no idea what it is… -_-“) and Peter decides to touch one it and the machine that’s keeping the spiders from crawling all over the place shuts down and all of the spiders fall down and on Peter and he freaks out. He then quickly leaves the room without noticing that one of the spiders is on his neck. On his way out of the building his bumps into Gwen and while he’s talking to her, the spider bites him. O.O And that is all of the movie I will tell you about for now cause this post is already SUPER long!!!! O.O -_-” Instead, here are some more clips from the movie and the trailer!
Go to YouTube and search “The Amazing Spider-Man clips” for more! ;D And I give this movie a 11/10 🙂
